    my next one will be, but I am not going to be changing my computer anytime soon I don't think...

    might change the motherboard and get a new video card but other than that I have no pressing need to modify anything... :)

    I think antec do a modular psu as well, 480w the last I checked. I'm guessing it's going to be pretty expensive though, considering their other PSUs cost quite a lot. It's a brand i'd trust though :)

    are modular psu's just having less cables hanging off it or are there other differences between them and the standard ones?

    btw, think you should find one that is ATX v2.03 to fit newer motherboards that supports PCI-e

    everything is going pci-E... better to get a psu with support and get an adaptor than simply getting a regular psu
